What can Lip Fillers Achieve?
At Hampstead Aesthetics we can offer Lip filler augmentation for the following indications:
Softening lipstick bleed lines by enhancing the edge of your lips
Smoothing vertical lip lines, again by enhancing the edge of your lips
Creating a natural lip contour through restoring or enhancing volume in the body of your lip
Lifting the edges of your lips to restore their youthful position
Improving the philtrum column definition of your upper lip for a lovely cupid’s bow
Treating the marionette area underneath your mouth to provide support to the lip, help improve shadows in the area and your lower face profile contour.
We tend to associate plump and defined lips with youthfulness. Our lips are at their fullest in our 20s. We know that as we age, the composition of our lips and surrounding structures thins. Sometimes the lips can be asymmetrical, due to ageing or other lifestyle factors.
From between the ages of 30-40, factors such as sun damage (photodamage), gravity, genetics and smoking play a role, leading to a sad-mouthed or drooping appearance. Lipstick bleed lines and a flattened cupid’s bow will also culminate in a mouth that looks less defined.
WHAT ARE LIP FILLERS?
Our aim is to maintain the natural lip shape and create a plumpness to the lip volume and accentuate the cupids bow. This also improves lip hydration and shape.
As we age, lips naturally lose volume and plumpness. This is due to the overall decrease in collagen and elastin that occurs as we age. These are the complex proteins in our skin which provide structure, support and elasticity. Our lips get thinner and smaller as we get older.
Not only can strategically placed Dermal Fillers help restore lost volume, they can also be used to redefine and reshape lips. Lip volume is best built up in stages, and it is best that you have smaller volumes of filler added over a period of months to get the desired outcome.
